A friend of mine is doing research on the Root family tree.
She is the Great-Great Granddaughter of Alphonsene Sickles-Amos Root. Alphonsene
Sickles-Root died in Omaha, Nebr., in Douglas County in Nebraska on 4th of July 1925, of
carcimona of the liver & bowels, the duration of her illness was 44 years. She was
born in New York but my friends info says she is of English ancestry. She was born on
December 4th 1836. She married Amos Root on Sept. 6, 1858. Hopes this helps.
